Description:

Except for one move on P3 this is all 5.4. But itís steep, sustained at 5.4 and very exposed making it feel harder. Start atop a pile of blocks just right of a right facing corner. Route goes up a left facing flake then traverses to the right facing corner. Up to the overhangs then traverses around the corner and up to a small hanging belay. P2 goes left then right, then left again to the GT ledge. P3: up the wall and traverse right over the overhang; through a notch in the overhang (!!!) and up to easier ground. There is one sweet 5.6 move between 5.4 handholds on the traverse. Bring Tricams and smaller cams for all the horizontal placements. A classic!

I like this climb...I rarely do it. P2 is a great lead for a new leader. No route finding and great gear. Nice exposure. a 70 M will get you down to the block at the start. Down climbing is required.

Fun climb. Haven't been on this in years. Extremely well protected and fun crux. P2 is great for a new leader. Easy route finding, reasonable gear and easy climbing. A 70 M rope will get you down from the tree to the boulders at the base of the climb. You will have to pull the rope through your belay device once you get on top of the boulders. It's an easy down climb from there.

Flash Flash ascent by: crw5074 on 2012-08-25 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars Fun, polioshed start.

Thought the polished start getting to the 1st flake was the crux. P3 traverse was easy, small hands but huge feet. 5.4+
